An influential figure who switched the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday

The Roman Catholic church allegedly switched the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday following Constantine in 320 AD, according to SDAs.

The Bible makes it quite plain that Jesus Christ kept the Sabbath on Saturday, and that His apostles did the same following His death.

The Catholic Church and Roman Emperor Constantine established Sunday as a day of rest at the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. And the Catholic Church outlawed it at the Synod of Laodicea in about 365.

On February 27, 272, in Naissus, a region of Moesia's Dardania province, Constantine was born. His father, Flavius Constantius, was a resident of the province of Moesia and was also born there.

Both his father's and his own entire names from birth are unknown. His praenomen has been given as Gaius, Marcus, and Lucius, among others.Whatever the reason, praenomina had by now mostly vanished from the public record.

With his father's coronation as Caesar, he also took the name "Valerius," which was the nomen of the Roman emperor Diocletian.Galerius was too sick by the middle of 310 to participate in imperial politics.

His last deed is still in existence: a letter to the provinces published in Nicomedia on April 30, 311 that announced the end of the persecutions and the restoration of religious tolerance.
